I am a local and this has been my all time favorite place in PR. I simply love the flora and the rock formations. It is a beautiful place to take pictures and enjoy nature. Warning: Please do not go alone. This is a hidden trail and is usually very lonely (except for the weekends when families come to take... More

Now if you love your family do not take them there. Drugs paraffin alia all over the place. Use condoms laying around. Trash and more trash all over the place. Completely abandon by the city and the state. Rat and roaches all over. Swim at your on risk.

The places is lovely but the city does not provide it any attention. But natural beauty does not need it. The tunnel is dirty but so are caves it part of the history, but it does need a info booth to tell the story. The view the view. I would not recommend going at night.

I go here often and it's beautiful, but it needs a lot of cleaning. It would be awesome. They should also make a boardwalk here that takes you into the water. The beach is beautiful.

This place has been abandoned for many years. It seemed to me like it has been used by people to abandon unwanted dogs, very sad to see them.

The beach is good and the tunnel takes you through to a quiet setting. Nice for picture taking. A little secluded and on the week no security available.

The place is beautiful, the problem is the garbage around and the security. Our group hear the sound of a train, weird thing because there is no train here. Maybe is true that you can have a paranormal experience. The beach is amazing, so pretty, this place has potential, but it clearly needs some cleaning, a nice place to eat... More
